Pardon Marissa Alexander

My cousin is serving life for a non violent crime and were going up against the parole board this June.She has served 20 year's for an attempted burglary because she has 2 prior convictions that are felony's, so when sentenced she was a 3rd time felon and was hit with 25 - life! I know many people will think oh she is just a felon but it's a lot deeper then having sticky fingers . My cousin was born transgendered born as a man but always felt like she was in the the wrong body, so after years of struggling with her sexuality she finally became comfortable with the fact that she was born a He but wanted so badly to be a she ans would stop at nothing to feel normal. That's how the burglary's started, thinking she would get enough money to be what she always knew she was destined to be a woman. Well she obviously wasn't very good at her new life and paid with more then half her life, I know she has grown and deserves a second chance, So let's start changing today for a better tomorrow.

Ban Toxic Plastic Chemical Bpa From Food & Drink Containers

The day that changed my life forever!! :'( ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ My downward spiral started on June 6, 2001. My daughter was at preschool as usually when I got a call from the school saying Cheanelle had a fever and small little dots on her legs. So I called her pediatrician and went and picked the baby up and brought her to the doctor's right away. They took some blood and proceeded to check her out. a short while later the doctor Informed me that she was referring me over to a Leukemia specialist. As you can Imagine I was in total disbelief. So I proceeded over to the specialist with my thoughts scattered everywhere. At Albany Medical Center on the Oncology floor we received the worst news that Indeed Cheanelle had Leukemia and she had the more severe kind of it (AML). Cheanelle was admitted into the hospital the very same day so she could start her chemo right away.In the beginning everything seemed promising and I really had faith. As time went by and different chemos were tried nothing seemed to be working. So know the people who have been telling me to keep the faith, there now looking at me and telling me there's not much more they can do WHAT DO YOU MEAN??? I couldn't give up on my baby girl she meant everything to me. I can't even had Imagined living one day without her. It hurt to bad to even think about it. Unfortunately I don't have to Imagine the deep burning pain of It because I'm actually living It. After her short 6 month battle with leukemia Cheanelle took her last breath In my arms on 11/29/01. I can still remember that horrible sound she made while gasping for air and the feeling of not being able to not help my poor baby girl. Holding her poor life less body still haunts my mind even almost 12 years later. Thank you for letting me share My Cheanelle & Her fight ♥ We still don't know how Cheanelle got leukemia, make's you wonder even more :(
